    No one would respond to your post.

    But there is no "The Internet".....But, if a magic genie came along and broke it there would be an immediate worldwide recession followed by a boom in new tech..

    In keeping with hypothetical fashion, why not ponder about other related electronic gadgetry - if all ceased to exist tomorrow.

    I saw a movie where that happened. You end up pushing a shopping trolley down a post apocalyptic highway, or fortifying your village form marauders or something...

    Guessing your family are in U.K

    I never used to phone my daughter or family from Thailand as it was to expensive but they used to phone me every weekend.

    My wife had a phone with a Vectone sim card that she used to phone her family back in Thailand when we were in the U.K,1p a minute!

    I gave that one to my Mother and brought my daughter the same. Great Value
